Buckeye Back Road Tour: We headed west out of Columbus stopping at Dan Kremer’s Eat Food For Life Farm in Yorkshire, Ohio. Mr. Kremer is an absolute evangelist when it comes to organic farming. His orientation is that farming could well be considered a pro-Life issue. That is, with modern farmers using toxic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, the soil is being tremendously depleted. In turn, a given crop’s nutritional value diminishes in kind. What’s more, some of the toxins get into the food creating ‘chemical cocktails’ in the consumer — that can, ultimately, cause cancer and other disorders. (During an Election 2004 campaign swing through Ohio, I told the Bellefountaine News that because of these modern agricultural practices, we have become our own worst enemy when it comes to: chemical warfare.) Mr. Kremer looks at farming as a vocation and adheres closely to Catholic Rural Life principles. All his crops are organic, his chickens are free range and his cattle are grass fed. And he carries other local farmers’ organic products (honey, nuts…) at his Farm Store on the property as well.
